The cross looks like its cut Glam Ribbon, and the flowers look like Peonies maybe? Try searching for tutorials on Sugar peonies....

AThe flowers look like ranunculus to me. Peonies are more frilly.

It never ceases to amaze me that someone wants to know *exactly* what flower, technique, etc is found in a picture so they can duplicate it.

Is it really *that* important?   The flowers on top don't look to me like either peonies nor a ranunculus.  Ranunculus are much more flat;  peonies can be more frilly but it doesn't matter so much. 

I's say they are an old fashion rose.

Sooooooo now OP you have a choice.  Will the client really know the difference?  No matter which one you choose, the cake will be very pretty. 

As for the cross I say it's a non-edible piece of jewelry:  try using degrees(sp?) or just pipe dots or stars with a small tip and you will have the same look but it will be *your* creation and I'm sure pretty enough to please your client!

AThe reason why I was asking what kind of flower it was is because I wanted a tutorial to show me how to get started with it...but thank you for your advice what you said is very true!!!

Kinda looks like a mashup of ranunculus and tulips...many petals like ranunculus, but longer petals like tulips

As with all flowers there are many different varieties.  The ones I grew in my garden were not like those shown in the tutorial - they were much flatter with many, many layers of petals - oh well guess she can do whatever she wants.

Lucky!  I wish I could grow ranunculus here, but it's way too hot...I miss our non-tropical plants!
